Princess Cruises has promised to invite UK agents onboard its newest ship, Sun Princess when it visits Southampton.

It was confirmed today that the ship will be in the UK for the first time for two days from 22 September 2024, during a full season spent in Europe.

Vice President for the UK and Europe Eithne Williamson said: “We are just so pleased that Sun Princess is coming to Europe, she is such a beautiful ship.”

She said she wanted to make sure industry colleagues will be able to experience the 4,300-passenger ship when it arrives in Southampton.

Speaking at an event in London to launch the cruise line’s 2024 programme, Eithne said: “We will be looking to get agents and our incredible frontline team onboard the ship.

“It will be amazing to experience.”

She added that the UK market is ‘incredibly important’ to Princess Cruises.

Bookings for 2023 are up 25% compared to 2019, she said, and 15% compared to 2022. “We are going into the year in a really strong position,” added Eithne.
